A couple of flags were installed on the gate of Himachal Pradesh assembly.  

Khalistani flags were found tied to the gates of the Himachal Pradesh Assembly on Sunday morning. Cops suspect the flags were put up late on Saturday. The flags, however, were removed from the gates and other places.  

"It might have happened late night or early morning today. We have removed the Khalistan flags from the Vidhan Sabha gate. It could be an act of some tourists from Punjab. We are going to register a case today." Kangra SP Khushal Sharma.

Chief Minister Jairam Thakur condemned the incident and said that an immediate investigation into the matter would be carried out and strict action would be taken against the culprits.

"I condemn the cowardly incident of raising Khalistan flags at the gate of Dharamshala Assembly Complex in the dark of night. Only winter session is held here, so there is a need for more security arrangements only during that time," Thakur tweeted in Hindi. 

"Taking advantage of this, this cowardly incident has been carried out, but we will not tolerate it. This incident will be investigated immediately and strict action will be taken against the culprits. I would like to tell those people that if you have the courage, then come out in the light of day, not in the dark of night," he added further.

The Anti-Terrorist Front of India on April 29 burnt the Khalistani flag outside the deputy commissioner's office in Himachal Pradesh. Anti-Terrorist Front of India (ATFI) activists led by its national president Viresh Shandilaya and Himachal Pradesh unit chief Rajkumar Agarwal burnt the flag and raised slogans against the demands of Khalistan. They also waved the tricolour.

The development comes after Sikhs For Justice (SFJ) leader Gurpatwant Singh Pannu called for hoisting the Khalistani flag in Shimla on Friday.
